Martha Allen was born 1710 in Henrico,Virginia. She died 7 June 1767 in Williamsburg,Virginia. Martha was executed for the murder of her illegitimate child. She claimed the father of the child commited the murder. Does anyone know the name of the child or who the father could have been? She was married to William Sharp at the time. So not sure why anyone thought the child wasn't William's. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
